Get A Bigger Hotel Room With This Simple Request

There is nothing quite as good as getting the whole hotel treatment. You get to escape your ordinary day to day activities, isolate yourself or see other people, feel like you’ve gone to another continent by sleeping in a different bed for one night. Hotels are amazing. They are that breath of fresh air you never knew you needed. Hotel services may vary on the price you’re paying for your room, but there are some amenities that are common for each type. You get a clean bed, clean shower and towels and the option to not be disturbed. Other than that you may get a full mini fridge stocked with snacks and drinks, television, free Wi-Fi, food service and even an access to the pool. Of course, you may ask for some things that are extra, but 99% of the time, you’ll have to pay a bit extra too to get them. If you ask room service to bring you some Chardonnay, you can bet that it’s gonna cost you some and it will probably be pricier than that in a restaurant. Basically, you will pay for any additional service you require, and it’s up to you to decide whether you’re okay with that, you really need it or not. However, there is one thing that you may ask and get for free, and that is a bigger hotel room. Just don’t go to the reception and flat out ask for a bigger room, try to work around the problem and ask for a corner room. Those rooms are usually designed bigger than the rest and may be exactly what you were looking for. So lay back, relax and enjoy your stay!

Here Are Five Tricks To Help Your Ears Pop After A Flight56s

Here Are Five Tricks To Help Your Ears Pop After A Flight

Having trouble hearing on a flight can have its advantages - if there are crying babies on board, for example, or a rowdy bucks crowd seated nearby. But what if you’re struggling to pop your ears and get your senses back to normal? First off, why do your ears need popping? The change in air pressure on take-off and landing is what makes your ears feel stuffed up and congested. This happens when the Eustachian tubes that link you middle ear to the back of your throat get blocked. As a result, some people are unable to hear anything while others feel a dull pain. Rather than wait for that inconvenient, stuffy feeling to go away on its own, you can speed up the process by utilizing safe and natural methods designed to clear your Eustachian tubes and drain the fluids in your ears. These techniques can also come in handy if a cold or sinus infection has your ears blocked hours before a flight, and you want to prevent the potentially painful experience of flying with clogged ears. So, if you have trouble popping your ears on a flight, by following the five tricks below, you should find a solution that suits you: The Valslava Maneuver - close your mouth, pinch your nostrils together, and blow softly. The Toynbee Maneuver - pinch your nose and take few sips of water to help you swallow. Olive Oil or Hydrogen Peroxide - place 3 to 5 drops of lukewarm olive oil or hydrogen peroxide in each ear to help soften and remove earwax. Warm Compress - warm a washcloth under hot water and apply to your ear for 5 to 10 minutes. Steaming - boil a pot of water and inhale the steam to help thin the mucus and earwax in your ear.

Prince Harry's Best Man Announcement Will Melt Your Heart

As we were all waiting for news of the royal baby's name, Kensington Palace has opted to tide us over with an adorable announcement sharing the news that Prince William will be Prince Harry's best man. His announcement will melt your heart. After months of nail-biting anticipation, Prince Harry finally revealed who will be his best man. And that person, of course, is his brother, Prince William. In a series of tweets, Kensington Palace shared that Harry asked William to take the supporting role. It added in a second tweet that Harry had done the same for William at his 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton. Another tweet said William is “honored to have been asked”, alongside an adorable photo of the pair as kids. Harry and Williams have always been open about their close relationship. They often attribute this closeness to the loss of their mother at such young ages. “Our relationship is closer than it’s been because of the situation we have been through” - says Prince William. What remains a mystery is who will stand with Meghan as her maid of honor. Their father, the Prince of Wales, chose his brothers, Andrew and Edward, to be his supporter when he married Diana at St. Paul's Cathedral in 1981. And Prince Edward chose his brothers Charles and Andrew to be his supporters. Come May 19, William will no doubt excel in assisting his brother, whom he is "delighted" for. William has been very supportive of his brother since the 33-year-old royal and his bride-to-be announced their engagement in November. But, being his older brother, he had to get a dig in along with his congratulations last fall: “We’re very excited, delighted for them both. We’re wishing them all the happiness in this very exciting time,” he said, adding: “Personally, I hope it means he stays out of my fridge and will stop scrounging my food, which he’s done for the last few years!”
